II MORE BUILDINGS NEEDED.
Those who go out searching for rooms or a cottage have a most
I " disappointing task, unless they arc favored by good fortune.
J House-hunting and apartment-seeking in Ogden is as difficult
I as looking for a needle in a haystack.
Until the demand for housing facilities is better answered than
at present, Ogden will be in danger of driving prospective residents
to less under-built communities.
Homes are going up in all parts of the city and. apartment houses
of large size are being erected, but the necessity for more places in
which to live seems to increase rather than diminish.
I "NEWS WRITERS RESPECTED.
As a means of giving their city a good name., the San Fran
, Cisco committee, having in charge the housing of visitors to the
Democratic national convention, has reserved three of the largest
hotels for newspaper men. At first it was proposed to hold the
St Francis, Fairmont, and Palace for delegates, but the final deci
' cion was to keep those hotels for the writers who have the power
to favorably or. unfavorably sway public oipnion.
Any city laboring to make a good impression on the outside will
not fail to give the newspaper men the consideration shown by San
WILL THEY HELP THE FARMER?
Farmers of the country are .doing their best to offset the situa
tion created by big private banking interests who have tied up in
the supreme court the constitutionality of the farm loan act and
thus stopped loans to farmers at. this critical period in the history
of the country.
Through the Farmers' National Council, farmers of the country
' have asked congress for from $25,000,000 to $40,000,000 for the pur
i pose of purchasing livestock, machinery and other necessities to keep
the farms productive. Benjamin C. Marsh, the national representa
tive, as asked both houses for the enactment of such legislation be
, ; fore the convention recess. It is to be in the form of a "revolving
fund" to be repaid by farmers as crops mature.
It remains to be seen whether congress will bn as solicitous for
the food of the people as it was for the demands of business as to
j adequate transport facilities. There was no difficulty providing a
''revolving fund" for the railroads when they were turned back to
their private owners. There certainly should be no difficulty in pro:
viding a way to help the" farmer.
I THE DAY'S WORK. '
i t , .'.;... . " , .
I When the eight-hour day was first proposed, big employers of
labor sought to discourage the movement, but backed by the labor
unions the shorter day gradually spread over the country. Recent
ly a study of the results obtained under the eight-hour and ten-hour
day was made by the U. S. Public Health Service, and the data gath
ered in many standard factories since 101J is summarized as foi
j. The outstanding feature of the eight-hour clay is
I steady maintenance of output, whereas the outstanding fea
! ture of the ten-hour system is decline of output.
2-. Under the eight-hour day lost time b reduced tu a
minimum. Under the ten-hour schedule, work ceases regu
larly before the end of the spell, and lost time is frequent. "
3. Under the ten-hour system, the workers seem arti
ficially to restrict their efforts to keep pace with the less
efficient workers. On the contrary, under the eight-hour
i system the output varies more nearly according to the in
1 dividual capacity to labor.
I 4. When there, is a reduction of output, due to fatigue,
there is a rise in the number of accidents; that is; in the last
I hours of the 10 or 12-hour day, in spite of employes slowing
1 ' up in work, more accidents-occur,
j The studies on which these positive conclusions arc based were
made in'modern factories, employing such a large number of work
ers as to make any conclusions reached apply to industry in general.
And the machinery, product and processes in the ten-hour plan
; were sufficiently similar to the eight-hour plan, so that the compari
I son is an accurate one.
, There could be no stronger backing to the claim that working
men have always made that the shorter workday is the more effi
cient one. Jt is an answer that might even .-jar judge Gary, except
for the fact that his nerves are made of steel.

Britain Scores Advantage in
Prestige by Offer on
BUENOS AIRES. June 5. Although
sho agreement on the part of the
British' government to pay off . the
$50,000,000 owed by Argentina to
United Stales bankers, payable May
15, has been hailed here as "an act
of friendship," official publicity baa
not yet been given to the understand
ing In banking circles that the agree
ment was only conditional part of an
Ingenious financial arrangemcn which
enables Great Britain to pay her own
hundred million dollar debt to Ar
gentina without sending to thid coun
try a single cent.
Not only is this $50,000,000 lo be
credited by Argentina against Great
Britain's obligation, but the remaining
550.000.000 after being renewed,, is to
be gradually extinguished through an
arrangement whereby Great Brit
ain for a certain period pays In Lon
don the Interest on the principal part
of Argentina's external debt, bankers
l'rniso Great Britain.
Thus far the Argentine govern
ment, which was unable to get a re
newal of the loan in the United States,
has made public only the fact that
Great Britain has agreed to take care
of the obligation in bohalf of Ar
gentina and La Epoca, the government
organ has praised the transaction as
an evidence of Great Britain's friend
ship to Argentina and of great prom

Bankers say there is no doubt but
that the payment by Great Britain of
Argentina's debt has greatly increased !
the prestige of the. British in this j
country nnd has been correspondingly
detrimental to that of the United j
States, but called attention to the fact"
that the transaction is not without its
advantago to Great Britain also.
"I regret it very much," said one
Argentine banker to The Associated
Press correspondent, "but I fear the
failure of the American bankers to
renew our loan and the fact that Great
Britain has stepped into tho breach
and paid it, means a loss of economic
good will toward the United States.
While the complcto transaction is a
good business deal for Great Britain,
tho fact stands out In public opinion
that the British did what the Ameri
cans would not "We in financial cir
cles understand that money is badly
needed for domestic purposes in tho
United Stales. Nevertheless, Britain
and America are represented as wag
ing a commercial contest for trade in
Argentina. Tho economic effect of
the transaction in favor of British
prestige Is obvious."
As told In local banking circles, the
boat terms that Finance Minister Sala
berry could get from tho American
bankers on his recent trip to the
United Slates' was a renewal of the
